Canada Welcomes CB2!

January 20, 2012

Crate and Barrel’s modern, affordable sister CB2 is opening its door in Toronto this weekend, replacing the purple monster Big Bop and ending its long reign over the Bathurst and Queen corner. IKEA should be worried – a peek at CB2’s website confirms their pretty stuff could rival IKEA’s stronghold on Toronto’s student market. And it’s much, much closer!

Of course, I couldn’t be happier. We’re moving (finally!) to the area next week and I could use a few things…

A. Type 39″ Clock, $199; B. Roundabout rug, starting at $349; C. Liquid round yellow bowl, $54.95; D. Signal floor lamp, $329; E. Cage fuel pendant lamp, $169; F. Naxos dinnerware, starting at $4.95; G. 3-prong red coat rack, $79.95; H. Posh barware, starting at $3.50; I. Knitted graphite pouf; $99.95; J. Contact stool, $149; K. Tux coffee table; $349.

Suitcase: A Hawaiian Holiday.

December 16, 2011

I can’t believe how quickly the Holidays have arrived. I’m even a little ashamed to admit that I’ve skipped everything festive this season.  It’s been a rather chaotic Autumn and to be frank, I’m just grateful to escape to Paradise come Boxing Day! The thought of a beach has me splurging on a few Springlike additions – including some sporty items. The bf and I have planned an active few weeks, though lazy afternoons reading sound wonderful too. What are your holiday plans? x

1. Aubin & Wills cotton sweat shorts, $90; 2. See By Chloé leather sandals, $250; 3. Rebecca Taylor camisole, $315; 4. Lanvin bikini, $825; 5. Richard Nicoll striped silk crepe de chine dress, $730; 6. Camilla and Marc dress, $660; 7. Mother low-rise skinny jeans, $210; 8. + 9. Zoe Karssen T-Shirts, $110; . 10. Alexander Wang sneakers, $385; 11. Chan Luu leather wrap bracelet; $170.

Twenty8Twelve Fall Lookbook

September 3, 2011

Fall is undoubtedly my favorite season to shop, and I’m anxious to get my hands on a few new items: black leather boots, wine colored cords, a cream skirt and a few soft sweaters to name a few. The Miller sisters’ Twenty8Twelve Fall collection is enticing; I can already see a few of the pieces fitting in nicely with my current Fall wardrobe! And yes, mine is also filled with black clothes – the story of any TV/film producer’s wardrobe.

Ela Handbags.

July 10, 2011

Canadian designer Ela Kowalewska‘s debut handbag collection is perfect – Colourful clutches big enough to fit your money/id/lipstick/cell/keys, as Ela describes them herself. I’m torn between the brown leather or the furry black one for Fall. Visit elabyela.com to find a retailer near you.

Exotic India.

May 10, 2011

Have you visited Anthropologie lately? I love their Indian inspired collection. The bright colours and breezy fabrics are the perfect match for Toronto’s humid summers!

Keri Russell’s Gorgeous Brownstone.

May 9, 2011

I’ve envied Keri Russell’s fabulous hair since her Felicity days but it’s her gorgeous Brooklyn brownstone that I covet now. Elle Decor‘s June issue features Keri and her contractor husband Shane Deary’s 1860 remodeled home – A collaboration project for the new parents.

BHLDN Decor.

May 8, 2011

I love the whimsical look of Anthropologie’s wedding chapter BHLDN. They’ve just recently added a new decor section filled with pretty adornments and keepsakes. Be sure to check out their full tabletop collection – I especially fancy the knotty pine treat pedestal!
